Craig Rogers - photography: Blog https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog en-us (C) Craig Rogers - photography craigrogers215@yahoo.com (Craig Rogers - photography) Mon, 16 Mar 2020 20:11:00 GMT Mon, 16 Mar 2020 20:11:00 GMT Jessica & Phil at The Lake of Isles https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/11/jessica-phil-at-the-lake-of-isles What a great spot and day for a wedding at the Lake of Isles Country Club in Stonington Ct. 

Jessica and Phil had a fairly large wedding party that supported them through out the day and their pictures reflected that. The outdoor wedding ceremony on the large deck next to the picturesque lake could not have been a better setting, Just before the ceremony we took many images which included the first look then many bridal party shots. After the ceremony we had time for family pictures then took a ride with Jessica & Phil to a bridge on another part of the golf course where we got some nice intimate pictures on the bride.

We then got back in time so the couple could enjoy the cocktail hour with fiends and family. Soon after the entrance of the bridal party the couple had their dances with each other and their parents. 

Next, came the dinner where the main course consisted of Lobster Tail and Filet Mignon. 

Finally the party really go going with major participation in dancing and fun florescence rings which were a hit with everyone especially the kids. 

As the dancing went on for a number of hours the enthusiasm and fun up for the rest of the time.

I would say that Jessica & Phil had a great wedding day to remember.

Annelise & Nate Watch Hill RI https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/12/annelise-nate Annelise and Nate had a beautiful summer day for their wedding. Annelise's dress was gorgeous. I started with getting ready pictures at the Watch Hill Inn within the upper suite overlooking the bay. Later, pictures with Nate along with the groomsmen were taken at the bay while we waited for the girls to come down for the first look and formal pictures. Lot's of emotion going on, love it!

From there we went to the Ocean House for more formal pictures where everyone had a good time making for some great shots. 

Then we all went to the Weekapaug Golf Club for the Ceremony and Reception.

The Ceremony was a tear jerker, lots of emotion.  The cocktail hour was accompanied with music by a talented guitarist. The entrance and first dance made for some great shots with some tears here and there going on, especially with the parent dances. Finally the toasts brought on many laughs, hugs and tears. 

The dinner was superb, a buffet with many seafood and meat choices.

Finally, open dancing was very lively with a great DJ and crowd. 

I can honestly say everyone was great to work with especially Annelise and Nate,, Congratulations!

Kelsi & Avery https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/2/kelsi-avery Kelsi is an avid reader and loves the Savoy Bookstore and Cafe in downtown Westerly. So she wanted to take some wedding pictures there. We got the "First Look" and a sequence of other shots along with the wedding party. Plus we managed to be brave and get some pictures of the wedding party coming down the middle of the street just outside the bookstore.

Ashton & Matt Wedding Linden Place and the Towers, Narragansett RI https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/7/ashton-matt I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session and got some remarkable images. However their wedding images turned out to be amazing too.

We started at the Bristol Inn for getting ready pictures. The entire upstairs sweet was used that had a huge bedroom with great light and mirrors which made for some interesting shots. Next the ceremony was held at St Mary's Church on wood street Bristol which was impressive. After the ceremony we took a number of pictures in front of the church on the massive steps. Then on to Linden Place Museum nearby which had amazing rooms and backdrops with a circular staircase. My wish that the upper part of the staircase could have been used too since it would have have been really impressive shooting up the two flights. We mostly used the interior rooms where we found an antique lounge where some stunning images of Ashton were created. There is a curved window which made for great natural light and framed Ashton and Mat..

Off to the seaside park for some nice family and bridal party shots.

From there we made our way to The Towers in Narragansett. The weather was perfect for the cocktail hour outside which made for lots of nice candids.

After the entrance and first dance the toasts were emotional especially from Ashton's father. I think I caught much of those moments on stills and some video.

All I can say from my perspective was the the Couple was gorgeous, the locations were awesome for pictures.

Ashton & Matt https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/ashton-matt Ashton saw some pictures I took at Fenway beach, Weekapaug,  and decided that her and Matt wanted their engagement pictures done their too. We had changing lighting which gave a number of opportunities for a wide variety of images.

They both had a lot of fun, especially frolicking at the waters edge. When the sun went behind the clouds there was some nice rays coming through which made for some stunning backdrops and semi silhouette shots.

Emily and David a real engagement session https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/7/emily-and-david-a-real-engagement-session David called me and asked if I could capture his proposal at the Watch Hill Light House while is fiancee was unaware. I said certainly and would love to do it. Since I only live 10 minutes away I went a couple times to take some pictures and try and help figure out how we could pull it off.

So after a few conversations we came up with a plan and I think from the following images you will see that it went very well. Emily had no clue what was going on. I have never seen so much real emotion and joy coming from the two of them. I feel privileged to be there to Capture the Moment!

After the ceremony the bridal party headed to one of their meaningful spots at the Weekapaug beach and Shelter Harbor access for location pictures.

The couple showed lots of affection and looked great and Jack reflected that with his constant smile thought out the day.

Monique's dog stole the show in many of the pictures. 

The food provided by Shelter Harbor Catering was outstanding as usual and the live band completed the nights entertainment. 

Jack's son got up and jammed with the band for a couple of songs playing a mean electric guitar,, very impressive.

Sarah & Matt https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/sarah-matt The day started out at Sarah's parent's home in Westerly where we took some getting ready pictures of the family and her Maids. Just down the street I managed to get a few pictures the Guys, Matt and the Groomsmen.

Next we headed to the Fenway Beach where it was planned for the First Look to take place. I had Matt stand facing the ocean on a board walk waiting for Sarah to come. That turned for some really nice pictures along with others, just the two of them before the rest of the family and bridal party came.

Everyone had a good time as we took pictures on the boardwalk and then on the beach.

From there it was to the venue, Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington for the ceremony and reception.

The outside ceremony setting in the vineyard went off beautifully with a lot of emotion shown by Sarah and Matt.

After the ceremony it was cocktails in the Vineyard's main bar and reception room then it was off to the large tent for the reception.

The setting is very picturesque with the moonlit sky but inside everyone was warm and cozy while enjoying the buffet and dancing.

The following is just a smattering of pictures covering Sarah and Matts special day.

Nicole & Jason https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/9/nicole-jason You couldn't had a better day for a wedding. Nicole and Jason, their family and friends all had a great time. 

The bride started her day getting ready at her parents home near Weekapaug. As you can see from the photos she looked exquisite along with her brides' maids. The ceremony was held at the Watch Hill Chapel across from the Ocean House. From there the bridal party made a quick trip back to the parent's house to get a few pictures with their family pet, a golden retriever. Then it was on to Jonathan Edwards Winery in Stonington CT for the reception.

The Vineyard has been the go to place for wedding venues for a number of years now and they did not disappoint. They kindly had the netting removed on a section of the vineyard so as not to take away from the setting and for pictures.

Everything was perfection,  from the flowers, the food, the live band and what really stole the show what Nicole's grandfather singing a couple of songs near the end of the night.

Theresa & Christian sunset engagement session https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/8/theresa-christian-sunset-engagement-session What a variety of lighting situations we had at Napatree point, Watch Hill for Theresa & Christians engagement session. For quite a while the sun was behind the clouds and the lighting was very dull but soft. Then as time went by the Sun started to peak through and little by little it managed to break out and wow, what reflections and warm glow came off the water. They were great in portraying their affection for each other. 

They are planning a destination wedding at a resort in the Dominican.

Photography and the lighting is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get.. I hope my next shoot there will have the same results.

Lynn and Harliin had a small intimate family wedding that turned out extremely well. From the classic car to the seashore style wedding and finished off with some sunset pictures. What else could you ask for?

Here are just a few pictures to get a taste of the event.

Caitlin & Ryan Engagement at the Ocean House Watch Hill RI https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/5/caitlin-ryan-engagement-at-the-ocean-house-watch-hill-ri I always in enjoy working at the Ocean House and this was not exception. However since hurricane Sandy our beaches took a toll and some repairs are being made to some of the decking. Its also early so the season hasn't started yet where the beach accessories are not all set up.

Caitlin and Ryan certainly had a fine weekend to enjoy the ambiance of the Ocean House and scenic Watch Hill for their engagement get away.

They preferred more traditional posed pictures but we managed a few artistic styled.

Looking for some ideas to make your Wedding different? Try these from Marel & Andrew https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/1/looking-for-some-ideas-to-make-your-wedding-different-try-these-from-marel-andrew What I found out is that over the years weddings usually fall into 3 categories. The couple either went to a friends wedding or saw another one online and just had to copy it right down to all the details, no problem with that. Then there is the other type of couple who's says, We want our wedding to be different, unique, we don't want it to be like so and so. Finally the couple who just goes with the flow who are not striving to out do or to be someone else or be over the top.

So now enters Marel & Andrew's wedding. 

The Ceremony and reception was held at the Glen Manor House Portsmouth RI, one of my favorite venues.

The following is just a smattering of images of the many I captured, many on the normal side but others well, you be the judge as I make notes on them.

So the above image is just getting them warmed up for the next picture. To capture a something different group picture, have you ever thought about re-acting the West Side Story Rumble scene with real knives?  

The Bride and Groom did survive to get married later, whew!

Here are a few shots of Marel that I like.

Marel and the girls striking a pose.

The window shots were awesome too.

So traditionally after the first dance it's expected to have the toasts for about 30 minutes or so and you hope that there might be a few good laughs in there some where, but wait, how about having a couple of friends come and do their Burlesque Routine in their skimpy outfits instead? This is absolutely guaranteed to be different. It did raise a few eyebrows too!

Ok say so let's say you happen to have a couple of friends who will do this dance routine for you, great, so that should have topped off the "let's be different list", right? Nope.

Next up is the Father Daughter dance, now look close to who is invited to see it!

Well a few others happened in, but it was mainly a private affair, how cool was that?

Marel & Andrew you win the "Let's do something different at our Wedding award" by a long shot, as far as I am concerned.

The Aluzzo Family https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/10/the-aluzzo-family It turned out to be another nice day for some family pictures on our local beach. Timing is everything for the best light and we were a bit early but still managed to get some nice images. We had some nice natural interaction which I am sure is evident between the family. Bella Sky, the baby, sure had some happy expressions. Mom and daughter had fun doing a little frolicking in the water. I think all and all they have a few keepers.  Maryanne is the part owner of the Uptown Salon and Spa which I highly recommend for all your hair and beauty needs.

The Town Beach Kids https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/9/the-town-beach-kids Summer is almost over, but...we have some memories.... 

We have a great, nice family beach here in Westerly. Lots of families and their children, which over the years we got to know many fairly well.

My wife and I do not have any children but over the years we have had the opportunity to help bring up a couple while helping out our friends which has been a pleasure. So we do enjoy the kids a lot.

So there is something special about catching those fun moments of the children while they are young, since they do grow up so fast. So I decided to grab some shots of our local brood, while they were at the business of doing what they, The Town Beach Kids do best. I hope you enjoy some of these pictures as much as I do.

So I don't just focus on Weddings, but I am also available for Family and Seniors location portraits.

This is just a smattering of the images I got, the rest can viewed on my Client Photos Essays page, under Town Beach Kids.

Eileen & Bill, Ocean House, Watch Hill RI https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/7/eileen-bill-ocean-house-watch-hill-ri What a great wedding with a nice mix of locations for pictures. We were able to get some shots at the Ocean House where the Bride and guests stayed and had a clam bake the night before. You can't beat the Ocean House for amazing location pictures. Then we went back to the couples compound where they had a tent setup for the reception with some benches and ottomans for the guests to witness the wedding ceremony. 

A string quartet played for the ceremony and throughout dinner setting the scene for a beautiful Tuscan feast. A Jazz band and singer was the entertainment following dinner service.
The menu was outstanding with passed horderves, raw bar and Tuscan style six course dinner with beautiful table settings. 

Enjoy!

Sarah & Arthur https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/sarah-arthur It turned out to be a good day after all. We did get a brief shower later in the day but were able to get some very nice family pictures when the sun popped out on the beautiful grounds at the Meadow Brook Inn.. I was surprised to see how nice an area they have for outside cocktails and photo opportunities. I believe they won Best of the Knot for two years.

Sarah and Art made a great couple and it was easy to get some nice relaxed photos of them. I must say that her flowers were outstanding with the bouquets and the table centers pieces. Her Uncle has a 1963 Chrysler that was in pristine condition that made for some nice shots. 

The reception tables were decorated with the different styled flowering arrangements along with a few books that Arthur appreciated since he is an avid reader. 

The music was provided by a 6 piece band.. 

All and all it was a great wedding for a great couple.

Bella Sky and Maryanne https://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/5/bella-and-maryanne Bella gave us a tough time in that she only liked to cat nap and could not get her into a sound sleep where I could do some fun creative poses.

However I managed to get a few that Maryanne really liked and I think she is glad she did, since she is growing so fast. She now has a nice record of her at 5 weeks old. I am looking forward to capturing some more images of Bella Sky as she gets older.
